Cha Eun-woo’s Wonderful World Has Begun Filming in Gyeonggi

‘Wonderful World’, the highly anticipated K-drama, is currently being filmed in the Gyeonggi province of South Korea. The show is about a grieving mother and psychology professor out for revenge after a personal tragedy. When justice is not served, she decides to take matters into her own hands. Her path crosses with an enigmatic medical school dropout in this intriguing revenge thriller series.

With a star-studded cast including Kim Nam-joo (‘Misty’) and Cha Eun-woo (member of K-pop boy band ASTRO) in lead roles, ‘Wonderful World’ is set to make waves in the K-drama world. Eun-woo was spotted shooting near the Haengsin Station in Gyeonggi-do. The province is a significant filming location of ‘Midnight Runners,’ ‘The Advocate: A Missing Body,’ and ‘The Ruling Hand.’ The state/province, the region in which the capital city of Seoul is located, is preferred for its scenic locations such as the Hwaseong Fortress in Suwon-si, Namhansanseong, Korean Folk Village, and Icheon Ceramics Village, which showcase a charming cultural heritage. Moreover, Gyeonggi-do has excellent weather for filming due to its four seasons that offer cooling valleys and beaches, blooming fields, mountains, and snowy peaks.

The cast of the thriller series was in Seoul in June for a script reading session. Cha Eun-woo’s agency, Fantagio Entertainment, said in a statement: “Cha Eun-woo has confirmed his appearance in the drama ‘Wonderful World’. As Kwon Seon-yul, a medical student with a mysterious secret, he plans to show a new side of himself that he has never shown before.” A medical school dropout, Seon-yul hails from a wealthy family but loses his parents leading to a harsh life in the series.
